Why QRURs are important for MIPS

Here I go, rambling about the cost category again. I really want to make sure all of my readers understand this measure because it is so new and we didn’t have to worry about it in the past. CMS is going to be comparing your spending based on beneficiary to other providers across the country and rewarding the providers that are most conservative with CMS dollars. The easiest way to do this is to pull your QRUR data often and make sure your providers understand why this is so important.

So, how do you get your QRUR data? And once you find it, how do you read it? Well, let’s walk through it together.

First, access your QRUR data through the CMS enterprise portal. You will use your EIDM login information and the security code they send to your secure device to log in. Once you are logged in, select the PV-PQRS option on the My Portal screen then select Feedback reports.

Now that you found where the reports are kept, put in the filter options I have listed below.

  1. Select a Year: whatever year you would like
  2. Select a Report: Annual Quality and Resource Use Report (QRUR)
  3. Select an Action: View Online

And VOILA! You have your QRUR reports. Now, how do you read these things?

The first tab that opens will display your TIN’s value modifier and some information about the QRUR report. You can use the other tabs along the top of the report to see more detailed information about how your TIN compares to other TIN’s in your grouping.
